This weekend-long celebration of the blue manna crab, and other local produce from around the Peel region, is so much fun. Celebrity chef “Fast ED” (Better Homes and Gardens) is joining the Crab Fest experience as this year’s culinary ambassador. Follow your nose to the tasty cooking demos!


Seafood lovers can expect fresh and cooked crabs, crab inspired dishes and plenty more mouth-watering seafood (plus meat and veggie dishes too) from local Mandurah restaurants and food trucks. Pack a picnic rug and enjoy alfresco style, by the water.
